Brighton and Hove Albion have sensationally suspended manager Gus Poyet along with two other members of the backroom staff for an alleged breach of contract.
The Albion, currently reeling from being beaten 2-0 by arch rivals Crystal Palace on Monday; have also suspended Assistant Manager Maurico Tarrico and First Team Coach Charlie Oatway.
The news comes after Poyet revealed in his post-match comments that he was “considering his options” after his side missed out on a chance to go to Wembley in the Championship Play Off Finals.
All three members of the coaching staff have been instructed not to contact first team players or go near the south coast club.
The suspension, handed out by Chairman Tony Bloom, looks like it is the end of a successful three years for former Chelsea star, Poyet, who ends his reign at Brighton as the tenth longest current serving manager.
